A brand new trailer for Red, featuring Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, Bruce Willis, and Mary Louise Parker made its debut at San Diego’s Comic-Con. The film is based on the cult D.C. graphic novels by Warren Ellis and Cully Hammer.
It has been branded as “an explosive action-comedy.” Mirren, Willis, Freeman and Malkovich play a foursome of retired CIA operatives who are now being framed for assassination, because they know too much. They must band together and use their combined wit and skills to survive. They also uncover a massive conspiracy.
Red is directed by Robert Schwentke (The Time Traveler’s Wife.) I think it looks like a blast. Who doesn’t love seeing Helen Mirren toting weapons? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Red is being released by Summit entertainment on October 15. Check out the new trailer after the break.
